Transient reversal of thrombocytopenia in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura by high-dose intravenous gamma globulin.
Since recent observations indicate that treatment with high-dose intravenous polyvalent intact immunoglobulin leads to a rapid reversal of thrombocytopenia in the idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpuraExpand

Complement and leukocyte-mediated pulmonary dysfunction in hemodialysis.
During hemodialysis, cardiopulmonary decompensation may appear in uremic patients, possibly caused by plugging of pulmonary vessels by leukocytes. In 34 patients we noted leukopenia (20% of initialExpand

Hemodialysis leukopenia. Pulmonary vascular leukostasis resulting from complement activation by dialyzer cellophane membranes.
Acute leukopenia occurs in all patients during the first hour of hemodialysis with cellophanemembrane equipment. This transient cytopenia specifically involves granulocytes and monocytes, cells whichExpand

IL-4 controls the selective endothelium-driven transmigration of eosinophils from allergic individuals.
The mechanism leading to selective accumulation of eosinophils in allergic inflamed tissue is still unknown. In this article, transendothelial migration of circulating eosinophils from normal andExpand

Migration of primed human eosinophils across cytokine-activated endothelial cell monolayers.
Eosinophils are known to adhere to cytokine-activated endothelium. Whereas transendothelial migration for neutrophils is an inevitable consequence of this endothelial-dependent adherence, this hasExpand

Density separation of human red blood cells on self forming Percoll gradients: correlation with cell age.
Human red blood cells were density separated on self-forming Percoll gradients. Redistribution of density fractionated red blood cells was studied by recentrifugation on self-forming PercollExpand

Interleukin 1 and tumor necrosis factor stimulate human vascular endothelial cells to promote transendothelial neutrophil passage.
In an attempt to understand the regulatory mechanisms governing passage of neutrophils from the vascular bed to the interstitial tissue, we analyzed the effect of the pleiotropic monokinesExpand

Modulating influence of chemotactic factor-induced cell adhesiveness on granulocyte function.
The importance of adhesion in regulating locomotion and accumulation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) has remained vague. We found that the chemotaxis of human PMN resuspended inExpand

Granulocyte activation by endotoxin. I. Correlation between adherence and other granulocyte functions, and role of endotoxin structure on biologic activity.
Reminiscent of high concentrations of formylated chemotactic peptides, another group of bacteria-derived products, the lipopolysaccharides and lipid A, stimulate PMN adherence to petri dishes.Expand

Comparison of red cell creatine level and reticulocyte count in appraising the severity of hemolytic processes.
In seeking a sensitive indicator for quantitative assessment of hemolytic disease, we found a close dependence of red cell creatine level on cell age. Studies in 21 patients with steady-stateExpand
